Stay Strong, Stay Healthy - Level 1 - Online

Description

The evidence based virtual Stay Strong, Stay Healthy (SSSH) program is designed to increase independent living older adults’ access to a safe, structured, and effective strength-training program. Over eight weeks, participants will learn exercises online to improve strength, flexibility and balance as well as learn about nutrition. At each class, a prescribed set of eight upper and lower body strengthening exercises are completed along with warm-up and cool-down stretches. SSSH helps participants meet the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s physical activity recommendations. Participants are made to feel comfortable regardless of their current fitness level so they can safely participate and gradually build the strength beneficial to health. This program is approved as a research-tested intervention in the SNAP-Ed Toolkit.
